Featuring: Margie Strossmer, Renate Walker, Mandy Ahwesh and Natalka Voslakov.
This film is formed around several scenes of women telling stories to the camera of their sexual history and experience. This material is intercut and juxtaposed with related footage concerning girls and their growing up, memory and the learning process and the received truth of history lessons. This film as a whole makes for an uncomfortable fit between women's personal experience and the official dogma of our culture's history.
The filming style is of the ethno-graphic film without the expert observer and of the home movie without the father.
